As most people know by now, Barack Obama and Mike Huckabee stole the show in the Iowa caucuses. This is exciting stuff for Obama—depending on what happens in New Hampshire and beyond, he could definitely widen his base and potentially bring out voters who wouldn’t normally cast a ballot in November. It will be fun to watch how this plays out.
NPR interviewed Iowa #2 John Edwards this morning and he was unable to directly answer Renee Montagne's question: where do you have to come out in New Hampshire in order to stay strong in this election? He literally talked around the issue for 45 seconds until she asked “But, back to the question, do you have a number?” and he talked around the question some more. I so need to master the technique where people ask you direct questions and you just respond with a few enigmatic code words, a bit of sign language, and then yell "Look over there!"
As for Mike Huckabee, though I doubt he’ll keep his momentum, I welcome him as the Republican candidate, since any number of Dem candidates could totally trounce him in a general election. After the results last night, he announced that now he was “grooving” or “in a groove” or something like that. I don’t know a ton about the Baptist minister from Arkansas, but I suspect he wouldn’t know what a groove was even if James Brown was attached to his ass. And I say that after having seen him performing Freebird in New Hampshire. Check it out if you must.
